It's Thursday and another Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge. Love these colors! … Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede… CLASSY!


Been thinking about this Challenge for a few days. One of the perks of being part of the "Pals" is that I'm able to see the upcoming Challenge before it goes live. When I first saw these colors I knew exactly how I wanted to present them… by using one of my favorite sketches. Sometimes it just happens, the sketch and colors fit like a "hand in a glove"! So, this one happened to be easy for me… I went with my instinct and enjoyed every step.


  • Here's a little "Design Tip"… when you're using a three-color combination, always keep the "Gallon, Quart, Pint" Rule in mind. One color should be your predominant color (your "Gallon"); one will be there, but not take over (your "Quart"), and one will be your accent – just a little (your "Pint"). 
  • So in this design, Soft Suede is my "Gallon", Cajun Craze is my "Quart", and Mossy Meadow is my "Pint". 
  • Soft Suede and Cajun Craze are pretty close, but the difference is I framed the design with Soft Suede, so it's the front runner.
  • It's fun to see it all work as it should.

So, pull out your favorite sketch, use these gorgeous colors and create something classy!
